lyrics

Down In The Bramble

Don't send me in the bramble
Don't send me down the mines
Leave me with the Haitians
Sugar cane, coconut, and limes

Fill your hungry hulls
With spoils for the Queen of France
Laser pointers and flip flops
In the night through theft and chance

Down in the bramble

Ramsey Lewis is at the cannery
Sound check is running late
Tiger striped roadies eat tuna belly
Leave the mix up to the Fates

When the sun comes up on White Noise Beach
The eels gotta be fed
Daikon, bacon, and Georgia peach
Drop it in watch the water turn red

Down in the bramble

Don't take me to the north shore
Don't ride me to the reef
Leave me in the lowlands
In the halls of the Chiefs

The language of the drum
Speaks to me in a broken rhyme
Lines that travel across our skin
Lines through space and time

Down in the bramble

Don't send me in the bramble
Don't send me down the mines
Leave me with the Haitians
Sugar cane, coconut, and limes

Down in the bramble
Down in the bramble
